I have often pondered how Heavenletters™ work their magic. I do know something happens.
In God's introduction to Heavenletters, Love Letters from God, Book One, He says:
We are here for the engagement of ourselves. We sit and hold hands. That is enough. A few moments with Me goes a long way...What is My message her for you today? Forget about it. Just be with Me, and allow Me to take you places...Give me your heart, not your mind. There is enough mind in the world and perhaps not enough heart. In any case, I ask for your heart. I wish to entwine it with Mine. Let Our hearts rub elbows. Sit down with Me a while.
He says more too.
Recently there was an email from a dear new subscriber in reference to HEAVEN #2958 Leave the Game of Unhappy Memories, December 30, 2008. The gist of the email was:
"This is a wonderful concept, but I've so far never heard from any one or any book an actual means of getting over a traumatic event."
In my mind, I have been answering this subscriber.
First of all, I personally don't know anyone who avoids trauma. I don't know anyone who bounces back instantly. That day will come. It hasn't yet come to most of us. We do the best we can to weather our heartaches. We just keep going.
There is no means. There is no How To. There is no formula. There certainly is no quick fix.
Yet there is mending. There may still be tears, and yet there is solace. Most of us do somehow come out the other side. We let go of some of the pain. We don't linger in it any longer.
The first time I heard about Job in the Bible and how he lost his children, and God gave him a new family, and Job was happy, I wondered how he could not say, "What about my other children?" And yet Job was right to take joy in what God had given him that day.
If there is a cure for trauma, so far as I can see, it can only be growth of consciousness.
How would you answer the new subscriber?
Now back to Heavenletters. I love what Jochen recently wrote on the Heavenletter Spiritual Community Forum about how Heavenletters work. He wrote:
God's words in Heavenletters™ are not a teaching but a massage. The same strokes every day, mostly soft, sometimes a little bit rough, always loving. There is not much that needs to be understood intellectually, just to be around, just to expose yourself to this massage until one day something reaches the very core of you...
